DIVE INTO THE DARKNESS
PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS, SEMINAR AND MEETING
25th - 31th March 2020
FISHERMEN’S COVE DIVE RESORT
PUERTO GALERA - PHILIPPINES
Are you interested in experiencing something new? The Macromania Events and SUPE Scubalamp Underwater Photography Equipment, in collaboration with the prestigious Fishermen’s Cove Dive Resort, invites you to participate to the diving experience of a lifetime: BLACKWATER 2020 - Dive into the Darkness.
Imagine floating into the darkness, drifting peacefully along a current line while surrounded by the tiniest marine organisms of the weirdest shape migrating
up from the abyss: plankton, larvae stadium of crustaceans, microscopic fishes, jellyfishes, pelagic seahorses and much much more.
For witnessing these unique creatures, blackwater diving is conducted just after dusk, well off shore, away from any land mass. However this does not mean that we need to dive deep. On the contrary, we will not descend below 15 meters, waiting for these organisms to ascend from the depths. Our dive team pioneered blackwater diving in Puerto Galera on the island of Mindoro area. Using bathymetric maps, local knowledge and experience we located the best places and times. To ensure the safest rules we also only take small groups of 5 divers maximum. We assure you that this event, which combine photographic workshops for learning the technique with Blackwater diving will be as unique as the subjects that you will encounter.
Topics and skills learned during the photography workshops, together with the experience gained during diving, will be put to the test in a photographic
competition at the end of the event.
The competition will be evaluated by an internationally renowned jury on-line that will examine the technical skills, the artistic beauty, and the biological content of the image and the “eco-friendly” approach of the photographer. The winning participants will not only return home with interesting prizes, but all participants will also return home with a new and more in-depth understanding and enhanced perception of underwater activities, underwater photography and with lifelong memories and appreciation of these magnificent biological communities and ecosystems.
